I’m a 33 year old young lady and I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer on June 20, 2009.  When I got the news I was devastated and scared.  I knew in order for me to beat this I had to stay positive throughout this whole ordeal.  Dealing with the fact that I had breast cancer was hard enough.  The emotional, physical and financial burdens were all factors that I had to deal with.  I didn’t know what to do and how I was going to do it.  I went through 4 months of chemoptherapy, then I had a lumpectomy surgery on my right breast, then I went through 6 weeks of radiation.  Going through all of that was very hard and trying.  I was mentally and physically drained.  It’s one of the hardest things I had to go through, besides losing both my brothers.

Thank God a friend of mine told me about UBCF, because they have made a huge positive impact in my life.  My friend ran into a representative of UBCF, then he told me about UBCF and I went on their website and was really impressed by all the information that was on the site.

The reason why I love UBCF is that everyone that I have spoken with is very encouraging and positive.  This has been a very hard time in my life and having UBCF by my side has allowed me to deal with the hard times of going through breast cancer.  When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I was like what am I going to do.  Most breast cancer organizations only help with research and don’t help out with the patients needs, especially financially.  Having UBCF help me with a grant was such a blessing.  As we all know in our daily life without dealing with any health issues, finances could always be stressful.  I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I wasn’t awarded the Individual Grant.  I was at the end of my rope with my family and friends helping me out.  This grant saved my life.  I’m so appreciative and grateful that UBCF has a program that helps cancer patients, not only financially, but emotionally and informatively too.

I like to personally thank UBCF for helping me get through this hard and trying time in my life.  This is the best organization ever and I would definitely recommend UBCF to anyone that has breast cancer.  I can’t express in words how I truly feel.
